Hiking and knitting under the Midnight Sun
An Exciting and Active Knitting Tour in the North of Iceland: midnight sun, traditional Icelandic mittens
Departure: 2020, June 21-28
This beautiful tour takes you to the incredible mountain range of Tröllaskagi – the peninsula of the Trolls – in the North of Iceland. In June, it’s daylight all night long so we shall not fear the trolls but enjoy very long hours to explore the beautiful outdoors of the mountain landscapes and to listen to Hélène sharing her knowledge about Icelandic knitting heritage with focus on the traditional mittens. During the tour we will knit a pair of mittens with Grýla*, the most famous Icelandic trolless known for eating naughty children at Christmas… We will also visit local craftsmen in the area, the Tannery centre in Skagafjörður and the Textile Museum in Blönduós, as well as meet with local spinners and dyers in the Borgarfjörður region. Accommodation in picturesque country guesthouse and farm. Sleeping bag accommodation. Accommodation in country guesthouse with a sauna.

*Grýla is also the name of an Icelandic yarn created by Hélène perfect for mittens
